Thales in the well/Boredom

While the water bore his body up
his mind bored up the drill-hole, past
the ground,
                          to the small circle of sky.
                                            /
Why would the world conform to any concept?
When in a well it is enough just
not to drown—
                                 why dream of being dry?
